    I went to HS, and played football with Phil. I considered him a very good friend. He was very kind, genuine, and funny as you could get. He was always so inviting, and always made me feel welcomed into the group that included Dan Norris, Shawn and Tank Trammell, Jason Brown, and a couple others. I’m devastated at the news of his passing. I pray for peace for the entire family and countless friends who loved Phil dearly.

  21. So sorry for your loss, or I should say our loss. Philip was more than a friend to the Norris family, he was family. I truly love Philip like a brother and I know all my siblings do. Each one of us has expressed our pain. But I know the pain you feel is 100 × more than I could ever feel. At Psalm 34:18 it say’s “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” My thoughts and prayers are truly with all of you.
